Long Island Expressway Sitting Area
Sometimes it's just nice to take a rest, and if you're weary after crossing the Long Island Expressway, stop by this series of park benches to regain your strength. This piece of land was likely acquired when the expressway cut through the neighborhood, and is undeveloped except for this corner seating area, where the curb has been pushed back and benches have been added.
A very small lot at 74 St. at 57 Ave. in Queens
